  1. I'm so sorry for all you're dealing with, MP. You'll be in my thoughts.
  2. Welcome, Wiki! What a pretty girl. If she starts landskaping projekts in the spring, you'll know for sure Lila was behind this.
  3. Happy birthday dear Spirit, happy birthday to rooooo! 14!!! Love, Sweep (who hopes to reach 14 but is knot so much into turdle snax) and her mom
  4. Merc, you are very ham-sum. Happy birthday!
  5. So sorry for your loss. Such a handsome boy and gentle soul. Rest well, Nigel.
  6. I have been looking for an update. So glad he is feeling better and you have a little more time together. Sounds like you have a wonderful vet too.
  7. Hello again! I'm back to say that Basil's gift shipped yesterday! On Saturday or Monday it should reach you. Would you like the tracking number too?
  8. You have received great advice from people far more experienced than I am, so I just want to say that I'm sorry you're facing this. Sending hugs to you and your handsome boy. You will do right by him.
  9. Saw your post on another thread and came here to say how sorry I am for your losses. Your story made me cry as I know I too will only be able to kiss Sweep's tummy at the very end. Those feisty girls are something special. Many hugs to you.
  10. Happy to help! I know how frustrating it is when you don't know exactly what you're dealing with. I will just add that nothing showed up on x-ray with Sweep back then either. It was a presumptive diagnosis for a long time, until we needed an x-ray for something else a few years later and, sure enough, they could finally see the calcification/arthritis in that toe. I guess in some cases the dogs can feel it a long time before we can see it. Not sure if that's what's going on with Pandi but an old injury is as good a guess as any, and greyhound toes are notoriously problematic. If the limp can b
  11. This is exactly what happened with Sweep. She ran at least 70 races and retired at 2.5. No signs of lameness until she was 5, exactly as you describe--primarily upon rising and then she'd "walk it off." I'd go into a full-on panic thinking it was osteo each time we went in for an x-ray. We spent a lot of money trying to figure it out: appointments with ortho specialists, treatments like Chinese herbs and acupuncture, and physical therapy. One of the specialists finally determined it was a weight-bearing toe on her front left foot; probably an old racing injury causing issues with age. We've ma
  12. @EllenEveBaz My colleagues at the postal service tell me Jeter's box arrived. So that Santa won't get nervous, can you confirm or did they lie?
  13. Happy birthday, Cletus KLTO. We miss you. Miss Jan
  14. Jerilyn, I'm so sorry you've lost your redheaded girl with the most appropriate racing name. I was a big fan. Lila has always sounded so much like Sweep, who has her own backyard hole projekt and has never met an alpaca but sure hates curly Labradoodles. Those opinionated girls certainly make their mark and I can imagine your heartache. I hope Lila will send you a sign. Rest well, beautiful Lila.
  15. Sweep is similar. Super affectionate when standing. Not so when lying down. She always had sleep startle, but not wanting to be touched on her bed at all started a couple of years ago. I'm sure she has her reasons. We respect that. Do I wish I could snuggle with her on her bed? You bet. But I have cats for that. She's still our sweet girl.
